To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Toulouse Airport.
What to Expect
The mid-size terminal at Toulouse Airport handles European and North African routes. Amenities include a variety of eateries and shops, including duty-free, both landside and airside. No shops are open 24 hours, so plan ahead for midnight snacks. Free WiFi helps pass the time. Economy class passengers can pay to enter an airport lounge. See Airport Lounges in the airport guide below for location and access information.
Where to Sleep
Overnight campers report a sleep-friendly airport, with many solid sleep spots. Try the red couches in the departure areas or ride the escalators upstairs to find several long, soft benches. An eye mask and earplugs or noise-cancelling headphones are crucial to blocking out airport lights and noise. For uninterrupted sleep, nearby hotels offer shuttle service for free, including several in walking distance. See our Airport Hotels section below for more info.
In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security.
Pay-per-use, Single Visit Passes & Lounge Memberships
Regardless of what class of service you are flying, there is a lounge that you can enter by paying at the door, purchasing a lounge pass or through a lounge membership program (ie. Priority Pass). Visit the individual lounge page for more details about the lounge itself and to also find out how you can gain lounge access with just an economy class ticket!
